BG H12/521

In La Paz, Bolivia 100.000 people marched against hunger on 15 September 1982. The march ended in a general strike whereupon the military junta decided to rehabilitate democracy and parliament. President Hernán Siles Zuazo stepped forward. Three years later extreme currency erosion led to his demise.
